Updates on Saints 2 edits, Pen boys, and the difficult act of letting go

On April 11th, I had a very similar title, and in the last six months, I’ve edited the first books of the Saintsverse in their entirety.  In fact, I just finished edits on Saints 2 about fifteen minutes ago.  The ending underwent some major changes, and I’m much more pleased with where it’s at now.  […]

current projects: second edition

When I first made this blog public, I posted something titled boys, boys, boys.  It was a list of all the projects that I was currently working on in my head, and I posted it in July of 2017.  Suffice to say, a lot has happened since then, and that list has changed quite a […]

Jolie’s Alice in Wonderland Tea Review

An exciting thing happened to me over the weekend.  I wasn’t really planning on writing this blog at all until about halfway through part two of the exciting thing, and then I realized that since one of my books is heavily based inside of a teashop, I should probably review the teas that I bought […]

2018 Goals

Happy New Year! 2017 was a wild year, full of a lot of unexpected things.  It was a hugely emotional year, and though I’m happy to leave it behind, I’m also happy to have experienced all of it.  I hope that 2018 brings just as much balance as the year before did, or more. In […]

Part 2 is done! & #nanowhy wrap-up

I realize it’s only been one day since my last post, and only two since my last time talking about Saints, but a lot happened today! First: part two is done!  Two days ago, I hit a really incredible milestone of 100k words, and I was super stoked about it.  For some reason, reaching that […]

I’ve been staring at a blank document for over a week

Sometimes I blog because I’m not writing.  I know this seems like a far-fetched idea since I literally just posted about writing 40k in 17 days last week, but you wanna know what was also happening last week?  Not a whole lot of those words.  There’s this really great saying in yoga, that life is […]

Writing is HARD; Or: the art of letting go

Writing is hard. I wrote a little about this last night, but only vaguely.  I’ve been in limbo for a while.  After I finished the Pen boys, I spent some time reading, and then jumped back into Alex the Destroyer.  I only had about six chapters left to write for him, and still have a […]

Post-Vacation Vibes

Gosh, it’s been a while.  Life has been insane lately.  Between my regular day job and teaching yoga, I haven’t been home much.  I’ve been subbing here and there, and I had the Harry Potter yoga workshop, which went over phenomenally, and then it was off for vacation.  I think I’ve mentioned Erin a few […]

boys, boys, boys

All the boys. I know I just posted, but boys.  I have a lot of them (and a few girls, I promise), and if any of this is going to make sense, I need to explain who they are.  Prepare yourself.  I’m not kidding when I say there are a lot.  I’m also linking all of […]

Hello again.

When I started this blog in December of 2016, it was both private and solely for Mason.  A lot has happened since then.  Obviously, it’s public now, and it’s about a hell of a lot more than just one boy.  (Really, it’s about all of my boys.) But first, as always, the beginning. Back in […]
